It is World Curlew Day today. I cycled along to Hatston and photographed a couple of curlews and thought 'there's a third', but it was a much less common whimbrel. I watched if for a while, it was nice to see both species at the same time and note the differences as I don't always find that easy. The extra is the curlew. Interestingly, the whimbrel is the only bird with an Oscar-winning song named after it- 'The Whimbrels of Your Mind' from 'The Thomas Crown Affair'. Har har.
